Horrifying video shows side-by-side comparison of Houston before and after Hurricane Harvey
The New York Times released a horrifying video showing Google Street View captures to compare against highways and roads in Houston, Texas, today after Hurricane Harvey made landfall.
Thus far six people have died in the massive flooding in Houston and surrounding areas as the rains continue to fall. Reporters with local news outlets as well as CNN have joined in to help with rescues as 911 lines were jammed with pleas for help.
News also broke over the weekend that part of the things President Donald Trump disbanded was a 2015 rule set by former President Barack Obama that aimed to make roads, bridges, dams, levees and other infrastructure more resilient to combat the impact of climate change. One such reason was to help as sea levels rise and flooding takes hold. Houston would have been one of the main cities to receive this assistance.
Current predictions are that there could be as much as 15 inches more of rain in the coming days.
Here is a list of ways you can help the survivors of this tragic storm.
